Hello Friends,

It has been one or two weeks since my main business mail accounts have stopped working in Thunderbird on my office Computer. They are all from one domain, the other private mail accounts - also new ones - function without problems. First I have tried ereasing them and to install them new but none of the four existing mail adresses are acepted. The message I get is: "Login failed. Either the entered access data is incorrect, or other, separate access data are required" If I try again, Thunderbird says: "Thunderbird couldn't find any settings for your email account" The data I am using is absolutely correct and is working on several other machines like Laptop, smartphone, accountants PC etc. I installed MAILBIRD on the office PC and the COOLFLATS mail adresses work perfectly with the same access data ! I have completely reinstalled the office computer 3 days ago and nothing changed. I also noticed one remarkable thing: If I try to install one of the COOLFLATS mail accounts on a computer, where the "old" coolflats accounts are still working, I get the same error message as on my office computer. Now this is really weird, has anyone an explanation or a solution to this weird problem or am I forced to leave Thunderbird and move to the alternatives ?

Kind regards: Hardy

How to change the line spacing of the folder pane for Thunderbird 78.3.1 (64-bit) on RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.

I have been working with Thunderbird on Linux since ca. 20 years. A few days ago, after upgrading to version 78.3.1 (64-bit), I had for the first time the problem that the font size and spacing of the folder pane was so large that I could only see a small subset of my folders on my laptop screen. So I studied the online forums and found that one has to create a userChrome.css file in the right place and put a style sheet in it to control the font parameters. With the following entry

  1. folderTree > treechildren {
 font-size: 11pt !important;
 font-family: Verdana !important;

}

I managed to decrease the font size, BUT this did not decrease the line spacing! So now the font is smaller but the lines in the folder page still are so widely spaced that too little is visible in the pane. I experimented with settings like

 margin-top: 0px !important;
 margin-bottom: 0px !important;
 line-height: 1.0em !important;
 padding: -1px !important;

but none of them seem to have any effect.

What is the right parameter to change here and where is all this documented? (And why did this setting change in the first place after being perfectly fine for so many years?)

I just upgraded to 78.3.2, and the message list panel now has significantly more spacing, less denstiy. There is more whitespace between lines. And there does not appear to be any option to reset this back to the previous compact view?

EDIT: Adding a note about an additional issue with the message list panel that is discussed in this thread... Prior to v78.3.2, a message/line in the message list pane would not become highlighted until I *clicked* on it. Now, whenever I just pass my mouse over the list, the message under the mouse becomes highlighted (and the last message(s) *selected* also remains highlighted). This results in two or more non-adjacent messages being highlighted in the same way at the same time. This is a poor usability experience and dangerous design that has caused me to perform operations on unintended messages multiple times, even nearly accidentally deleting messages. This usability degradation creates a risk of data loss.

When I try to send email I get this, and I cannot send the email : "Login to server smtp.googlemail.com with username (my email username) failed. I can however receive email.

Everything was cool this morning, but the problem started later in the day. It asks me to reenter my password, but that does not solve the problem. I can send email from the Gmail app however.

My ISP is AT&T DSL. OS is Win10 Pro. I'm using Windows Security, will not work with firewalls on or off. Version of Thunderbird is 78.8.0 Last update was 02 March, and I was able to send after that update. I tried resetting the TLS to 1 from 3, and that didn't help.

Screenshot is attached. Please help!!!

I have a major problem which is making my Thunderbird calendar very difficult to use. Whenever I accept a meeting invitation or change an event, my system is sending an email to every person on the invite list as if I were creating a new meeting.

For instance, if someone invites me and 10 other people to a meeting on Monday at 10:00AM, and I click Accept, this happens: The host, the 10 other invitees, and I all receive an email saying that I am inviting them to a meeting on Monday at 10:00AM. If I delete the meeting from my calendar, this happens: The host, the 10 other invitees, and I all receive an email saying that I have cancelled the meeting. To be clear, the notices don't say that I have accepted or declined the host's meeting; the notices say that I am inviting everyone to a meeting, or that I am cancelling a meeting.

This makes it impossible for me to use the calendar as designed. I don't want to spam my clients with improper meeting notices, so I cannot accept meeting invitations; I can only put meetings into my calendar manually.

I originally sought help by posting here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3069567

The feedback I received on that post suggests that the problem is my CalDAV server and a setting called "calendar-auto-schedule", not Thunderbird. I opened a ticket with my web host, but they wrote back that they could find no problems on their side.

I am hoping someone can help me to understand the problem and to document it so I can go back to my web host and force them to fix it. Either that, or help me to find a workaround.

On my Windows 10 PC, I use Thunderbird (TB) for four emails (3 are Gmail). For some reason one (and only one) of my Gmail accounts starting wanting password verification in TB. But when I click the 'next' button, it doesn't take me to the password page to confirm my password, it just erases my Gmail account name in the username field.

I'm not certain why it suddenly started needing password verification (and my other two Gmail accounts still don't). I've logged into the Gmail account on Google, and my password still works (haven't changed it). I updated TB to the latest version. I deleted the password in TB (hoping it would then let me reenter it). I finally deleted the Gmail account entirely from TB. When I try to add it back, it now only allows the inbox (not sent or templates folders). And it still keeps asking me to verify the Gmail password (but won't let me). I can see new emails received, but I can't send any.

Any suggestions?

I ended the thunderbird task and since then I have not been able to send any emails. thunderbird email suddenly error "Assembling message" then "sending of the message failed".

I found a possible reason but do not know how to remove any temp files or reset something to help this. On bugzilla https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1222992

Same error message "Sending of message failed", but different cause. TB 78.7.0, WIN 10

TB creates temporary files in user's TMP folder with a naming pattern like nsmail-????.eml And ???? is limited to 9999. After that - user cannot send messages or save drafts.

Thunderbird keeps disappearing from my taskbar in Windows 10.

What will happen initially is that just the icon itself will disappear (replaced by a white "blank" icon), then later even that will disappear, so Thunderbird is gone from the taskbar entirely.

This never affects my desktop Thunderbird icon, so right-clicking that and selecting "Pin to taskbar" always works, but only temporarily, till the same thing happens again.

This doesn't affect any other icon on my taskbar, only Thunderbird. It's happened 15 times so far (I can tell because, when its taskbar icon is right-clicked, there's a number in parenthesis to the right of the program name for each time that I've pinned it to the taskbar).

Can anyone please tell me how to resolve this, so Thunderbird stops disappearing from my taskbar?

Recently I have been getting a popup message when I delete mail. I do not understand why. I assume when I delete email and put out the trash, the message is deleted from disk permanently - at least former versions of Thunderbird worked that way. I am using the POP server pop.gmail.com on my tower. (I also access the same mail on my Chromebook - but do not save mail on that machine.) The message I am getting is: "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 1.6 GB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you.

Check to Remove message deletions automatically and do not ask me." My wife checked this to stop the popup and now is sorry she did, and she does not know how to reverse her action. Can you help?
